LOVE this series

  • Aug 20, 2010
Fans of the series won't be disappointed in this one. Jacky is such an amazing character; she feels so real that I expect her to pop out from the book any second now. The secondary characters are great as well and in this book we see the old characters reunite and we're introduced to new ones. I loved the plot of this book and it was just so great. I didn't want it to end. I don't want to go to deep into details because I fear I'll spoil the previous books in the series and this one. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. This was a pleasant and entertaining addition to the Bloody Jack series.

About this book


Jacky Faber, rich from her exploits diving for Spanish gold, has purchased the Lorelei Lee to carry passengers across the Atlantic. Believing she has been absolved of past sins against the Crown, Jacky docks in London to take on her crew, but is instead arrested and sentenced to life in the newly formed penal colony in Australia.
To add insult to injury, the Lorelei Lee is confiscated to carry Jacky and more than 200 female convicts to populate New South Wales. Not one to give in to self pity, Jacky rallies her sisters to "better" their position—resulting in wild escapades, brushes with danger, and much hilarity. Will Jacky find herself a founding mother of New South Wales, Australia? Not if she has anything to do about it!
